A statement from Patrick Goldstein, who wrote a column suggesting that the LA Times distribute music with the paper a la Prince and the Daily Mail, only to see it get killed by an (apparently not-well-liked) editor: “Obviously no columnist is ever very happy about having their column killed. But I’m much more disappointed that the column that was killed was full of ideas about how to help my newspaper. I love working at a newspaper, especially this one, but if we don’t start embracing change in a big way, there won’t be great jobs like the one I have much longer. I’m constantly writing about how all the studios and big media companies are radically reinventing themselves. It’s time we did the same.” [Deadline Hollywood Daily]

    I feel for this guy — how do you write something like this (the postmortem, not the article) and remain politic/diplomatic?

    I really, really love my job, even though my bosses are complete tools — but they shouldn’t regard that statement as mutinous! Please don’t fire me!
